Most Common Problems Married Couples Face

1.Clash of personalities

It’s celebrated when in love. Opposites attract and love blooms. But when opposites get married, it is a start of a marital war and problems that are never ending. It is bad especially when both people in the marriage are strong and have bold personalities and don’t give up easily. Rather than complementing each other, they end up being at each other’s throats for most of the time.

2.Lack of understanding

Even though married couples spend a lot of time under the same roof sharing the same space and a lot of other things, there is at times a lack of understanding because of a lack of intimacy, or communication or both. 


This is the most common and the most dangerous problem that married couples face. Boredom can be very damaging to any relationship and marriage is no different. Boredom leads to problems like infidelity, indifference and much more. It is always advisable to change the routine of your life sometimes to break off the monotony. Even though routine can be comforting,

4.Sharing of household chores

This is one of the problems that seem to have no solution. Together with the societal gender norms, there is also the added pressure of work making it difficult for men and women to share the household chores equally or at least to the satisfaction of both. Problems don’t arise when married couples discuss clearly the tasks assigned to each.

5.Leading separate lives

A marriage works when there is respect for the other person’s privacy and space. But sometimes this concept of space and privacy is taken to ridiculous levels in a marriage where it ends in a married couple leading two separate lives. This is a problem a lot of couples face. They come to a tactical understanding of not interfering in other’s lives but still stay in the marriage.
